Since graduating from Chelsea's academy in 2017, Mount has made 160 first-team appearances and scored 30 goals along the way.

The player enjoyed two loan spells at Vitesse and Derby County earlier in his career, but has since become a key first-team player at Stamford Bridge, featuring in 30+ Premier League games for the last three seasons.

In an interview with Sky Sports, the 23-year-old revealed he is looking to prolong his stay at Cobham. As things stand, Mount's contract expires in June 2024.

The player said: "I've got two years but I'm extremely happy at this club. I've been here since six years old, so I think maybe over the next couple of months the talks will start, so obviously it's exciting." He added: "After every year I feel I'm definitely getting older, more experienced, I still feel young but I need to step up and be a leader. "As I play quite a lot of games and I am experienced for my age to be able to speak to the younger boys because I've been there and done that... to give them confidence when they come and train because it can be difficult when you come away on a pre-season tour."

Mount, who is preparing for contract talks with Chelsea's new co-owner Todd Boehly, has already won the Champions League, Super Cup and the Club World Cup with the Blues. However, the player is yet to claim a domestic honour, having lost three consecutive FA Cup finals and last year's League Cup showdown as well.

What's more, the player is also setting his sights on the Premier League as Chelsea look to build on last season's third place finish.

He said: "Of course, winning the title is always the goal, that's always my goal personally you want to win the Premier League. It's very tough to do that because you have to be so consistent throughout. "We started last season very well and we were in a good position and then you lose a few games, drop a few points and you're third and it happens so quickly. "We experienced that last season and probably the last three so now it's something we need to change."
